I work as a PV engineer and I have had the best work experience and working around really good people made it even more exciting and enjoyable ever since I joined. This place has thought me a lot of great things and I have made the right choice choosing to work for SGC. The management is very helpful and has a lot expertise in their particular field.SGC has a strong leadership focused towards growth of organization.
Development Analyst (Current Employee) – Elkridge, MD – July 2, 2018
On most days I am on the phone or doing some research on the internet from my laptop. SGC has been very flexible with me in reference to my children and work hours. They do a great job of giving an employee several options for performing assigned duties. I love the management team. They are great folks to talk to whenever an employee may have any issue. The workplace environment is A+. I love coming to work everyday despite what obstacles that may occur to prevent that from happening. The hardest part of the job so far is just being one of the newest employees and getting to know the current employees. The most enjoyable part of the job is being part of the team that creates and stay on the cutting edge of the solar industry.
flexibility, teamwork, the atmosphere and environment, the staff
The company has a conceptually great idea as an owner's representative for larger clients in the solar PV industry. The strategic, business, and PR side is their strength. However, there's momentum lost among the co-owners bringing these concepts to life and delivering it on the projects. One co-owner serves as a specific function or department; there's a need to improve interface among them. (operations, engineering, site acquisition, and business development).
There wasn't a strong reception to "how are you going to get there?". The group/company has high aspirations, but showed ad hoc practices and territorial behavior from my perspective.
Note: I was from outside the solar industry. Different viewpoints.
If you specifically hire someone for those reasons, walk the walk. I'm sure it was a lesson learned on both sides.

Thank you for the candid feedback. We haven't used this platform much so our reply is a tad delayed.
As a small company, we are constantly evolving to stay ahead of the curve which sometimes translates into the perception of lost momentum. We've grown a lot over the last 18 months (since this comment was posted) and have added a simple IRA, health benefits, and all of the other "big company" benefits.
We are constantly learning and adapting at SGC Power. Growth and success are always fraught with risks. After 6 years, we are stronger and more focused than ever.
